Christie in New Hampshire? To Endorse Romney?

UPDATED QUICK THOUGHT: Why would he endorse before the debate tonight.  My thoughts: 1) Doing it before insulates Romney during the debate; 2) If Romney doesn’t do well, doing it after might make Romney look weak so do it today; or 3) this is when they were both available. – huntsu

UPDATE: Christie, who would have been a more dynamic candidate than the man he’s endorsing, made essentially an economic pitch to endorse Romney, in Lebanon, New Hampshire. – Rosi

According to the National Journal Chris Christie has again left New Jersey without telling us and is in New Hampshire.  What’s he doing in the Live Free or Die state?

Apparently endorsing Mitt Romney at 3 p.m. today.

That was our prediction last week.

    I guess that leaves Lieutenant Governor (Sometimes Governor) Sorta (We Guess) Because He Never Informs Anybody Kim Guadagno in charge.

    I wonder if she got a call.

    Choose one:

    1. Christie endorses Romney because he knows Romney will lose, leaving the field wide open in 2016. Having decimated New Jersey with a “balanced” budget on the books half way through his second term, Christie is once again the darling of the GOP and gets the Republican nomination

    2. Christie’s real ambition is to be Attorney General in a Romney administration so he can follow in the footsteps of another great head of the “Justice” Department leader, Alberto Gonzalez.

    seems like either of those are good outcomes for him, so it’s a good hedge. And it’s good for his hedge fund friends too!

    That’s exactly what I was thinking.

    Romney’s the dull, establishment-friendly candidate that they slide back to when most of the more colorful characters reveal themselves as too silly or too extreme to provide comfort to Republican voters. Christie  endorsing before the debate makes Romney more interesting, and adds a sidebar that features him and today’s news to any debate coverage.
